IPv6 trial


[link to this post]
 
I've seen a few threads regarding IPv6 on this forum in the past so I thought I'd highlight this blog post in case anyone had missed it:
Only last week we launched a trial of IPv6 technology for our Partners. The response we received was overwhelming; endless numbers of customers wanting to get involved so they too can start to benefit from everything it offers.

You got in touch; we listened. From today, our entire customer base are welcome to sign up to our IPv6 trial.
Zen have rather changed their tune on this as when I enquired recently I was told that there were no plans and that there was no demand from customers.

Every mention I've ever seen of IPv6 from Zen is 'there's no demand so we're not doing it'.

This is a welcome (and quite sudden) change and I have registered my interest!

My SixxS tunnel is doing a decent job but I'd much prefer the real thing!

Well the good news is that Zen will have the most knowledgeable IPv6 engineers and support team ever... given that they said "...we are very busy behind the scenes building and testing, as well as training all our staff to the high standards we set for ourselves. As soon as we have something available we will be in touch, rest assured!"

Given how long it's taken, people can expect extremely good support.

The trouble is if zen had said they're looking into it and may introduce it in 6 months people will take that as final and after 6 months if it wasn't out, complain because they promised it.

So zen must likely feel it's easier to say they have no plans yet work in the background and only release it once it's ready.

Looking forward to trying it out though.

My account is now enabled for IPv6.

Here's the relevant snippet of OpenWrt's /etc/config/network (using Google's DNS rather than Zen's) to enable it:

How long did it take them to activate you after requesting it?
